Percy Gets Into Shapes

Based around the themes of shape, size and colour, this program provides a number of educational games designed to entertain and excite children’s minds to develop sequencing, comparison and matching skills.

Shapes are explored by matching outlines to pictures of everyday objects, as well as distinguishing between commonly found shapes. Children can practice finding and sorting objects according to size, whilst colour is explored by following Percy the caterpillar’s instructions to colour images correctly.

Designed to develop children’s understanding of maths at Key Stage 1 and improve ICT skills, spoken instructions make this program suitable for unsupervised use. Also suitable for use with touch screens.

Key features:

  • Covers using 2D and 3D shapes.
  • Features activities based on size and colour.
  • Exciting animations and graphics.
  • Printable worksheets included for use away from the computer.
